Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive, easy to govern, but impossible to enslave. HENRY BROUGHAM
I’ve seen this over and over in my country! If an individual can’t read or write or even do simple math, they are condemned to a life doing or being used in unspeakable ways just so they can eat and have a roof over their heads. You won’t find educated girls and boys in the brothels or being used as temple prostitutes. You won’t come across beggars living on the streets – adults or children – who can read or write.
Reading, writing, math = human dignity.
A relationship with Christ = eternal life
Would you please consider helping us purchase the Hope Packs this year? Every year we come to you with the same need, but that is because we continue to rescue little ones. The number of Hope Packs needed remain around 6000. The reason? We have students who are graduating from seminary every February who leave us to minister in villages all over India. With their promotion, we have room to rescue more children from starvation and abuse. With 30 million orphans on the streets of India, we recognize – as did Jesus – that:
“For you have the poor with you always…” (Matthew 26:11)
Thank you for taking the time to read my request. Please listen to your heart and take action while you can. We don’t always get an opportunity to impact the life and eternity of another human being! God bless you!
